Eat and Drink NYC's Great Big Bacon Picnic: What to expect at Brooklyn's pork-centric festival By Jamie Reysen firstname.lastname@example.org Updated September 2, 2016 12:38 PM Print Share fbShare Tweet Email Bite into New York's bacon scene this month at Brooklyn's second annual festival dedicated to everyone's favorite pork product. The Great Big Bacon Picnic returns to the Old Pfizer Factory in Williamsburg on Sept. 24 and 25. If you're the Ron Swanson of your friend group, this is the fest for you: Pig out on endless bacon and booze from bars and restaurants around NYC, including Astoria gastropub Snowdonia, Williamsburg's Traif (known for its focus on all things pork) and Red Hook's Sixpoint Brewery. Tickets start at $99 for one of three sessions -- Saturday brunch (noon to 2:30 p.m.), Saturday happy hour (5:30 to 8 p.m.) or Sunday brunch (1 to 3:30 p.m.). If you're not a pork person, you should probably stay home; there are no turkey or soy bacon offerings up for grabs at this pig-centric picnic. Scroll through for a peek at what you can expect from the second annual bacon fest.
